still working on the stackoverflow suggestions:
such as
@echo off (didnt work)
installable program: 'silent cmd' (I suggest file location not how to run file)

>>Change the user running the task to SYSTEM and you will not get the pop-up
this seems like the best answer

included are screenshot explaining that I can not enter text into textbox
